Sacrifice, Cravings, and Bloodshed: Does Torah Allow City-Dwellers to Eat Animals?

What's at stake when we eat animals? How does the Torah envision humans and Jews doing so, and how did the Rabbis translate that vision as their economy shifted from an agricultural one to a commercial one? We will survey key Biblical passages and look closely at Rabbinic texts on the proper attitude and context required by Jewish law for meat consumption, asking along the way what this means today for people who don't interact with farm animals and who live in the reality of a factory farm-dominated meat market.
